President Trump Says ‘Era Of Patience’ With North Korea ‘Is Over’


Donald Trump has vowed that the ‘era of patience’ with North Korea is now over and plans to meet Kim Jong-un with force.

The U.S President has pledged a ‘determined response’ to the threats posed by the dictator’s nuclear weapons programme as well as the human rights abuses by its communist regime.

Standing beside South Korean President Moon Jae-in in the White House Rose Garden, Trump said:

The North Korean dictatorship has no regard for the safety and security of its people or its neighbours. And has no respect for human life – and that’s been proven over and over again.

Donald Trump also recently attacked Kim Jong-un’s ‘brutal regime’ following the death of American student Otto Warmbier shortly after he was released from a North Korean prison.

22-year-old Warmbier spent 15 months in a North Korean prison after being sentenced to 15 years of hard labour for attempting to steal a propaganda poster from a hotel in January 2016.


Mr Moon agreed with Trump’s comments saying the the North needs to be met with a strong response.

Trump made is clear that his administration is working closely with South Korea, Japan and other partners to protect everyone ‘from this menace known as North Korea’.
